THIS OLD HOUSE PARTNERS WITH NEW CANAAN BUILDER KARP ASSOCIATES INC. ON 2019 IDEA HOUSE

The public is invited to tour the Idea House at the Grand Opening Reveal on September 14, from noon to 4:00pm, and on September 15, from 1:00pm to 5:00pm

This Old House® has teamed up with award-winning building firm KARP Associates Inc. to build the THIS OLD HOUSE 2019 IDEA HOUSE in a classic-meets-contemporary home located in the coveted historic district of downtown New Canaan, Connecticut. Constructed on a site with a stately-but-dilapidated 1840s-era Greek Revival, the Idea House will retain the home’s architectural façade while downsizing from 7,500 square feet of haphazard additions to a well-designed 6,000 square foot home. The public will be invited to tour the home during an Open House Celebration on Saturday, September 14, 2019, from 12:00-4:00pm and on Sunday, September 15, 2019 from 1:00-5:00pm. TOH crew members, including Norm Abram, Tom Silva, Richard Trethewey, Kevin O’Connor and Jeff Sweenor, will be on site Saturday to mix and mingle with visitors.

This Old House’s fifth annual Idea House will be featured in the September/October and November/December issues of the magazine and in segments of the 2019-2020 season of the Emmy Award-winning This Old House TV series. On thisoldhouse.com, a webcam is capturing the build, and digital content will showcase the from-the-ground-up building process with fresh takeaways, innovative products, and how-to instruction that home enthusiasts can incorporate into their own remodels and new-builds.
